Column: Careful: You'll put an eye out, Kid

Each year, I find myself wandering the toy aisles in the stores trying to find the "right" gift for my grandkids. Each year, it gets harder. They just don't make good toys anymore. It seems it's all computers, video games and something called an "MP." I have no idea what that is. I want to give them things that they can build, where they can learn to use their imagination.
